I've seen some really cute cupcakes that must have been done with a big round tip. Like on www.pinkcakebox.com. Any thoughts on how to do this? The biggest round tip I have is the 12. I'm wondering if you could do this by cutting the end of a decorating bag rather than using a tip?

The biggest round tip I have is a 12 too. I imagine you could just cut a hole in the bag but I think it would be easier if you just used a bag with the coupler on, no tip. I think it will come out more round that way. they do make a bigger one, Anne uses one but I don't think she mentions what size it is.

Here's a video of Anne making her cupcakes. Hopefully this link will work.

I have a big tip, similar in size to the 1m. I believe it is a 2a, and it's just a big round tip... bigger than the 12. I bought it at a cake supply store, but I think it's a wilton tip.

I hope this picture shows up so that you can see.
